Drag builds on the experiments from Pull and is a further exploration into chance-based drawing. Based on Marcel Duchamp's 3 Standard Stoppages (1913-14), each drawing is made using a 1 meter long string as a drawing tool. The string is soaked in sumi-ink and dragged along the paper to create a variety of unexpected compositions.
